From the Finder Fn+ctrl+F2 select the Apple Menu icon. Is there a way to make this keyboard kung fu global so that I can use it from within all the apps to get to the Apple icon in the menu bar?

-------EDIT

Per timothymh's comment, these are the apps in my menu bar: enter image description here

  • ScreenHero <--- Launching this seems to be the culprit?
  • Postgres.app
  • BlueTooth
  • GoogleDrive
  • Wireless
  • AppleTV
  • Keyboard Input
  • Battery
  • Spotlight
  • Date/Time
  • Siri
  • Notifications

    It should be global unless ctrl-F2 is a shortcut in the app you're using. When does it not work?

  • @timothymh that's what I thought - seems to only work from the Finder

  • Do you have anything installed that might be capturing your hotkey? Most often this would be a menu bar application of some sort, are you running any of those?

    If something else is stealing it, ctrl/shift/F2 [+Fn depending on how your f-keys are set] should do the same thing.

Per this answer I might also be hitting Fn+ctrl+F1 System Preferences > Keyboard :: Shortcuts I'll try turning off keyboard access... toggling Fn+ctrl+F1 deselects the Fn+ctrl+F2 option. Ta da!
